I have recently started a new college course in Object Oriented Programming with Java, and our professor is having us work in the environment of Eclipse. I find myself struggling because I am used to working with DrJava, which is much simpler to work with. I'm having trouble grasping the concept of breaking the whole project into various classes and what not. Keep in mind I am still a beginner, and probably don't understand these things because a lack of knowledge... Is there anyone that can explain how Eclipse works in comparison to DrJava? That'd be awesome!

Not familiar with DrJava myself.
You should have divided your app into classes already. What you do in Eclipse is to tell it to create a class, and give it the details, and it does so.

What editor you are using has no bearing at all on how you structure your program and classes. Why do you feel that it does?
